No conspiracy theories, please

Call me a non-conspiracy theorist.

I believe, for example, that:

* Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in murdering President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.

* Men actually landed on the moon, beginning with Neil Armstrong’s “one small step … one giant leap” on July 20, 1969.

* Barack H. Obama was born in Hawaii — the 50th state to enter the Union — in August 1961 and, thus, is fully qualified to serve as president of the United States.

* Islamic madmen flew airplanes into the Pentagon, the World Trade Center and sought to fly a jetliner into the Capitol Building before they were thwarted by passengers on 9/11.

* Adolf Hitler killed himself in the Berlin bunker in April 1945 as the Red Army was closing in on his location.

* Elvis Presley actually died on Aug. 16, 1977 of a drug overdose in his Memphis, Tenn., bathroom.

I mention all these things because of the nutty theories being bandied about — to this day — about the fate of Malaysian Air Flight MH 370. I won’t repeat the goofy notions here.

My strong belief all along has been that something happened aboard that airplane to cause it to turn sharply off course on March 8. Its remains now are lying at the bottom of the southern Indian Ocean, along with the remains of the 239 people on board.

Our hearts break for those who are awaiting official word of their fate.

I just wish society, fed by social media and goofball Internet “sources,” would cease with the crazy talk. Let the searchers do their job, let them find the flight recorder, retrieve it and let its contents reveal the truth without all the mindless second-guessing.

Enough already.

  1. Conspiracy theories are always crap . No second thoughts on that. But as far as Flight MH370 is concerned , it is really ridiculous for the Malaysian government to claim that the plane crashed since till date no wreckage has been found. The latest claim of some sort of wreckage being found near Perth, Australia has also been disapproved today by the officials since they now claim that to be just an ordinary fishing equipment. The Malaysian government should have been more transparent. They totally failed in that aspect.

    The sad part in all of this is that there are people waiting for their folks even now. That too with great hope and therefore both the officials as well as the media should have been more careful in the way they feed information.. Seems like the government is trying to hoodwink. I mean the year is 2014 not 1800. We have the best technology and they cant trace a plane ? Whose gonna buy that ?
    Anyway i just hope if the plane has crashed, the authorities should find the wreckage so that at least the families of the deceased have a closure.

    If you ever feel like read this – Who Benefits From Missing Flight 370?

    Might make some sense since no fiction here, all facts.

    1. Agreed that the Malaysian govt has mishandled the information flow badly. The plane crashed into the ocean and I don’t think the govt needed actual wreckage to confirm what it strongly suspected.
